Located in downtown Carlsbad is our Italian kitchen, Gregorio’s. Formerly known as Spirito’s, we have been serving up delicious Italian food for almost 25 years. It was originally created by an East Coast couple as a way to share their family recipes. From the beginning we have had loyal clientele that continue to dine with us today. In fact, it was from being loyal customers that we decided to purchase the restaurant. We have always considered it to be our “kitchen away from home”. In 2004, Gregorio’s replaced the name but kept the family recipes we loved so much as guests and have added more of our own. Plus a much more extensive wine list & full bar! We want to encourage you to come, have a meal with us and experience our Italian kitchen. It is our hope that you will make it your own “kitchen away from home”. Our goals are simple

We had a later reservation (8:30) so it was after the rush and a bit more quiet. We sat outside on the patio with a view of the village streets. Heaters kept it cozy. Our waitress was great and so was the service. The food was hot and delicious and the portions were generous. We enjoyed fettuccine Alfredo and spicy shrimp pasta with a bottle of wine. Never felt rushed even though the night was winding down. Would recommend.

It was a very busy night but the service was still good. Most tables were occupied including one large party which accounted for the noise level. We have eaten at Gregorio's before and will return.

The raviolis are amazing and are the main reason we come back.
We were a party of four and felt cramped, hitting elbows as we ate.
Our waitress Hannah was very good. She is polite and attentive.

This was our first time at this restaurant and we are locals. Inside it was very loud with a drunk man at the bar who was yelling. Our server was very nice and attentive. My daughter had the Caesar salad but it was really bland and we sent back which they were happy to do. My husband and I shared the bacon wrapped scallops and a small rosemary chicken salad which was big and enough for us two. Both were delicious. My daughter ordered the margarita pizza which was good. Overall nice place good food but not your best bet for quiet dining.

Here on vacation for marathon, wife needed to carb load. Fun 2nd story spot, good balcony seating. Good hum of activity, made good cover for loud baby. Food was good, service excellent. Server went out of her way to accommodate our kiddos and even brought an extra bowl of olives when I mentioned how much our 3 year old loves them. Good spot, would return.

Gregorio's is always so accommodating. We always get close to the exact table we request. Our 2 year old loves to eat there because she can see the trains go by from the patio. We love the food and the staff has always been very accommodating and nice. It is nice to go to a place with great food, friendly atmosphere and works well with our kids.

Food was very good. Service was very good. Noise level was loud probably due to the fact they pack a lot of people in. Does have a nice patio area. The negative was we went at 6pm on a Friday night and they were out of several items we asked for especially the beer. However I would go back for a second try.

We have been going to Gregorio's for years and have never had a bad meal as everything is fantastic. My go to meal is the Eggplant lasagna with the Vodka cream sauce over everything, with the Ceasar Salad and Fried Calamari.

We have been going to Gregorio's in Carlsbad for many years. Whether it be a family dinner, a friends lunch, or participating in the regular fundraisers for the Carlsbad boys and girls club where the owners contribute generously, it has always been delicious food and drinks, thoughtful service and a good time. Don't pass by Gregorio's in the village of Carlsbad without stopping in.

We had the most delightful waitress.
Her name was Whitney.
She was absolutely charming and efficient.
We just finished a movie - "Off the Record"
with Jimmy Quill - a graduate of Carlsbad High! We are also celebrating Dennis Lees's 82nd Birthday. He said it was the best food he ever had and also best birthday!
Thank you for such a wonderful evening!
We had a wonderful time!

Everything was OK but we had reservations for 5 people and the table wasn't ready when we arrived. Also the table we finally got would really only fit 4 , so we we all felt very uncomfortable. We could barely fit all our entrees on the table. Other than that we would go back but would walk out if this occurs again

Love the location in Carlsbad. The outdoor patio, though on the street side, is far enough away from the street (and on the second level) that you don't feel like you are sitting in the street, like some places. Loved the food. Our waiter was great! Friendly and attentive....even though it was a busy night. Great food! Would recommend.

We had nine people for a birthday celebration. We got a great table out on the patio. Everyone raved about the food, especially the lasagna. The kids in the group loved the bread. Our server was great and kept all of our needs met. They even let us bring a birthday cake which they kept in the fridge for us until we wanted it. Overall, a very crowd pleasing place at a very reasonable price.

We have been to Gregorios once before as a family of 6 but this visit we took our 9 year old granddaughter for a weekend trip to Carlsbad. This was a special get away for the end of the summer and the restaurant was close to our hotel and she wanted to go there again. As it turned out she needs to put on some weight and we try to get her to eat any kind of bread or rolls and she has no interest in any of it but she tried their bread and not only loved it but ate 3 pieces. Our waitress was so wonderful ,she even gave us some to bring back home with us . We had a lovely dinner outside and the food was terrific!

We had a 6:30 reservation for 3. We got seated at 6:48. By 7, two other groups had sat down after us, one was a group of 2, the other a group of 10. Even though they sat down about 5-10 minutes after us, they received their food 10 minutes before us. We had great food (when it finally arrived at 7:50. I couldn't believe it took so long for our food. It seemed as if they forgot our order. Also, the waitress was asked to refill our waters after we ordered our salads, and didn't refill them until 15 minutes later.
Food is very good. For some reason the service wasn't. Perhaps it was the soccer team of 50 people on the patio. Go figure. We got out of there at 8:15, frustrated by the lengthy service.
